Remember Jim & Myra’s wedding? Well, besides having a gorgeous wedding, they have a gorgeous house and new baby! Jim has spent years building all this from scratch, and it’s still a work in progress. Hand hewn beams, strawbale, stained glass windows.
This is the front door into the big, airy, warm kitchen. It’s one of the coziest places ever. I should have taken more photos so you could really get the scale, it’s HUGE.
See? Pretty dang cozy.
Babies agree! Warm & cozy! (& Myra is 29, don’t worry. I know she looks 14.)
That giant door is a fridge/storage. Seriously, how is this real?
Pantry nook hidden behind the kitchen. Sticks!
The kitchen leads to the living room, a huge huge space with a stage for parties!! It’s so sunny and airy, and feels like you’ve left modern time and space and are in some old fashioned banquet hall!
From there, you go up a twisty stairwell to one bathroom with a mirrored hot tub, and a steampunk shower.
And another all green and cavernous. Up another staircase, and there are bedrooms with hidden nooks, a door to the living roof, and some of the most beautiful spaces ever.
Just through that door is the living roof.
Gratuitous pretty sister shot. On the right is my sister in law.
Outside, there’s a treehouse built for Jim’s older boy, one of the best I’ve seen.
I will live in this one, ok?
How about you all? Ever considered strawbale building?
